mermaidcomplex replied to RSA Shorts: Dr Brené Brown, “The Power of Vulnerability” (by Gobblynne): ah yeah, I saw the TedTalk by Dr. Brown :) I like this animated version!
Based on this little bit, I am definitely going to have to watch the entire TedTalk when I have the time. :)

Inspiration isn’t what gets your book written. Discipline is.
Inspiration is fickle: it shows up when you least expect it, all sexy and exhilarating and reminding you why you put your butt in that chair and turned off Tumblr and forced yourself to trudge through the valley of no-good, very-bad first drafts. Enjoy that inspiration while it’s there. Enjoy it thoroughly because it is rare and precious.
Just don’t expect it to show up every day. The only thing that needs to show up every day is yourself—and your determination to see this through to the end.
